Each of the last 10 Big 12 tournament title games have featured either Kansas or Baylor, but never both.
That peculiar trend will continue in 2016, as the Jayhawks and Bears are set to battle it out in Friday’s semifinal at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
Kansas, winners of 12 in a row and regarded by many as the best team in America, are favored to come out on top, but the Jayhawks already pretty much have the overall No. 1 seed locked up, so it will be interesting to see how Bill Self handles his players’ minutes in this one.
Baylor, meanwhile, struggled down the stretch, going just 5-5 in the last 10 games of the regular season. A win over the No. 1 Jayhawks, though, would give the Bears some confidence–and perhaps a boost in their seeding–heading into the NCAA tournament.
